the debt ceiling is all we have been hearing about talk about these talks yesterday, progress made at all? >> i don't think so. my hunch is when they got together earlier in the week they penciled out an agreement and said to the president let's see if we can tell it to our respective parties i think speaker boehner discovered he wouldn't be able to sell it to the republicans and there is no guarantee democrats would have gone along with the spending cuts either. >> john from your point of view much progress made? what happened yesterday? >> that being sunday i think they went in with intentions from isaiah 1:18 from now let us reason together but the final outcome was isaiah 1:20 if you refuse and rebel you would be devoured by the sword, the respective faces of both political parties i talked to a number of republican house freshman the week before they said absolutely there would be no consideration of anything that smacked of a tax increase
and the lesson of no taxes in any form has now been vented, on the republican leadership that will not come up in future discussions. >> taxes still the hurdle republicans cannot jump. >> well, you know in a sense it is the glue that holds them together i think you would have to take something really massive like going to a flat tax or something to get around this. >> let's talk about social security this seems to be the bagel feint in the room talked about -- elephant in the room talked about. the president talked about this, how damaging is this to folks that got him this office and how far might it go to reaching a compromise in the debt ceiling debate. >> sounds like they will agree to try to come up with 2 to $2.5 trillion worth of cuts you will have to look at it -- i don't think anyone is in the cut benefit more semantics of cutting the growth of benefits
either by figuring out how to readjust cost of living increases, i have known for nearly 25 years any way that i will be getting my social security at 67 not 65, so i have had 25 years to prepare. >> right. and john, i will ask you, how huge of a compromise might this be if we see any change in an institution like social security. >> well, it would be size mattic almost, a very dramatic change if social security were touched a more likely possibility would be medicare or medicaid and i might point out the national governor's association, bipartisan organization, wrote the administration only days before the talks asking for a greater hand in working on medicaid which is the premier reason that states are wallowing in red ink. i would say that and greater cuts might be the example. i think the you want to look at an outcome look at the state of
california, where governor gerry brown proposed some tax increases with major cuts he got the cuts, but didn't get the tax increases, and i think that is the -- would be the final story, in this very long saga. >> i hate to bring politic into this when we are just trying to keep this whole thing together but next year is a very important year for the president you have talks about things like social security, medicare, is this just too far away from the issues that he campaigned on to help as he goes into his campaign mode next year. >> i think what he will be able to say is look i have been doing the very best i could with a terrible economy s other chickens -- and other chickens coming home to roost but he is keeping his eye on the elections next year. >> let's talk about dispointing job reports coming out last week john how damaging was this, is it just because of the
debt? what comes first, debt or unemployment let me ask about reaction when the unemployment rate rose a little bit. >> well, this certainly fueled a lot of the criticism from the republican party that administration is not doing enough to spur the engine of plenty, with tax cuts and other incentives, quite honestly, i think it also strengthened republican hand in opposing tax cuts on those who are in a best position to create more private sector jobs, and therefore, provide more revenue. i would not say it was not a good experience for barack obama at all. >> we hear that a lot gary, you are going to raise the taxes on the very people people will be helping get the job market moving again where is the -- this is not against you john but where is the truth or the facts in that and does one -- the cart go before the horse. >> yeah, i guess what i am fascinated by is who is the
country holding responsible for this the negatives for obama going into next year is by about a 2.5 to 1 margin, like 67% of the people think the country is going in the wrong direction, 25% think it is going in the right direction that is a terrible head wind for any president to seek re- election on the same time when you ask people who do they think is most responsible for the bad economy i awe is a poll saying only 8% hold barack obama responsible 25% hold wall street responsible by comparison. so so far you know, these terrible head winds but people don't seem to be holding him responsible for it that is the good news for him. >> you will have to come back i see you are ready to say something we are out of time appreciate you being here. >> always a pleasure to be here overnight is an eternity in politics as a former secretary of state jim baker once said. >> bible scripture is wonderful
quotes, political editor of human events in the white house, gentlemen thank you both >> i feel enlightened this morning thank you. 7:41 a.m. a new generation of young adults still relying on mom and dad for help when it comes to paying bills. coming up at 8, we will talk with one financial expert who has advice how to get your kids financially responsible. we will be right back

distinguish the difference between gifting as part of an estate plan that maybe is included in that, wealthier families gifting some funds to the generation below them, some of which are gainfully employed and it is part of their overall plan, and versus, kids actually boomer hanging and moving back into the home with the parents where the parents are paying mortgage, grocery, utilitya lot of times paying cell phone billcar insurance and the boomer hang generation is comprised not only of generation y or millennials but with the great recession including some of the generation behind them, generation x parents are mostly baby boomers, and they are in a unique situation while their kids are moving back into the home with them they are the sandwich generation taking care of their own kids as well and parents, who are getting on in years and need help financially
for health care. >> boomers themselves nearing retirement age. >> that's right. >> this is a real financial strain on the baby boomer generation in particular. >> it can be and it is something that a lot of clients are dealing with on a -- currently and one of the things we advice is really have a plan in place, have a conversation if you know that a young adult is moving back into the home, have a plan, kind of outlining, steps, preferably timeframe, and what is going to be required of them whether it is financially or providing assistance around the house. >> you don't necessarily want them to move in scott free depends on the situation. >> correct. >> under going major issue. >> yes. >> obviously but i want to show you some of the tips that you all have on things parents should do, to -- or can do to help their kids because there is a difference between helping and enabling these adults. >> absolutely. so you know, helping set up a w
initial inflow of cash are is great to consider and i am a big fan of charging rent and that sounds maybe unpopular, but whether it is $100 or $400 what you are doing is laying the framework for financial independence having a required payment every month, and again it is not the amount it is the consistency on the 1st of the month they are required to pay something to live under your roof. >> psychologically it sends a message as well, to the young person who moved back in. >> absolutely there is no free lunch whether i live in an apartment with a few friends or at home with my parents. >> what are somethings you are finding parents are doing that they definitely should not do. i imagine from the way we were talking earlier one thing is you shouldn't be dipping into your retirement funds. >> yeah you have to put again most of the parents are at a
point in their lives where they are in their -- getting closer and closer so to sacrifice their own retirement to help give their kids a leg up early on, a little easier for the kids to be nimble or younger people to be nimble and adjust i think the timeframe is huge and having that conversation upfront because if you don't 3, 6 months down the road now all of a sudden, they have been living back in your home scott free and you try to lay ground rules and that can lead to uncomfortable conversations. >> what are signs where you will know, okay my child is just not handling their money very well. where you know it is an actual problem not just bad times. >> yeah, well, for -- i think the biggest sign is for people beyond college most of the boomer angers are if they are still living a life like
college but just under their parents roof and no obligations, no responsibilities with that, they are just kind of you know, floating along and parents are footing the bill and i think you know having a specific time that two or three months down the road we are no longer paying your cell phone bill six months down the road car insurance is back on your plate here is what it costs now check out what this is going to cost you on your own and you know there is no claim down the road you just drop this on me it is part of the plan. >> help not enable thanks for coming. >> thanks for having me. 8:21 a.m. on this monday morning the pilot of three planes got a surprise escort from fighter jets when they strayed into restricted air space we will check out other stories making headlines this morning at 8:30 a.m. then it is not open to the public so fox 5 maybe your only ticket to the fancy food show going on at the convention sent aerolook at different foodproducts on display stay

an unreasonable boss. >> we talked about it, it could be just with the economic issues now a lot of people feel they can't go any where or have tried and cannot find work. >> yeah, we thing that is part of it a lot of individuals are looking but just not having luck finding anything many folks are you know just a little bit afraid to go out and look for a new position right now for fear that they might not find anything. >> now, this survey shows 46% of employee haves worked for an unreasonable manager, 59% stayed in their jobs what can they do if they are going to stay in their job what is the best way to work through this? >> i think in general terms it is communication, some times it is on the employee to be very proactive about improving communication with their manager and having conservations about what -- conversations about what things may be frustrating them. >> we have aeries of different -- a list of different types of bosses many people may be able
to relate let's talk about the first one micro managing mark who is that? doesn't like to delegate tasks and there for is constantly looking over his or her employees shoulders to make sure the work is being done and not giving them freedom to make decisions or do to work on their own. >> how do you try to get over that? >> usually a trust issue so i think by keeping mark up-to- date and. to the minute on how you are doing on a task and progress you are making, typically will help and will help to build trust for future projects. >> that could just be a trust issue. quickly, sally the saboteur. >> likes to take credit but doesn't give out credit so some times can undermine her employees performance or progress. directionless doug. >> poor communicator deadlines and goals often times are not

yourself to work with the people in your environment. secondly if it is really unbearable, conversations with a mentor or human resources department in your company and lastly if it is not something you can manage you know maybe time to look for a new employer. >> all right josh howard we could talk about this even more we will have you back hopefully and you've got a lot of good advice we appreciate you coming. >> there you go. thank you say are. >> 80 countryregions at the fancy food show. >> holly morris is there to get a special look at the event that is not open to the public. holly you are our only way in. >> reporter: that's right. special access is what we are calling our segments this morning when it comes to summer fancy food show this is a big deal over the next couple days, 30,000 people here trade only show that means only people in the business can come in and see but you will see all these products in the near future this is the food industry as it is going to be not so far away,
